Green Lifestyle

“be like a bee, anything he eats is clean, anything he creates is sweet and any branch he sits upon does not break”

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”
—George Bernard Shaw

Figuring out where this whole “green” aspect of this website should go was a difficult task for me: objectively it seemed like it should go under the Inspiration menu because the majority of information on this page does just that…it should inspire you.  But instinctively I wanted to put it under Rejuvenation.  I discussed how I believe being your best person means taking care of your physical body and your mental self (that’s why information under the Rejuvenation page ranges from recipes to productivity lists) but I believe that this correlation is really just a microcosm of a broader relationship.  We can’t be our greatest self if we don’t live with the intent to respect the source of the natural products that support our everyday life (or even just to recognize its influence on our lives).  And because the members of our family yet to make their appearance are in fact a piece of us, we must have a mutual goal to preserve and sustain (hence “sustainability”) this “machine” that they will one day depend on as well.
